When you concentrate all of your efforts into something and bring your focus into that one thing with extreme sharpness, over time it will manifest itself as success. Not all area’s our lives can be this way as there are certainly things in this world that are beyond our control, but these are the same things that we must simply release and manage the best we know how.
Personally my concentrated efforts have been focused on developing techniques to conquer Type II Diabetes. I have my ups and downs but admit that it is all part of the learning process, but overall I believe that I have moved in a positive direction although not quite ready to scream it from the roof tops. There is still much work to be done and facts to discover through trial and error.
There have been many other times in my life where I used the same technique of concentrated effort to get through and achieve something in which I wanted to succeed at. I remember placing all my efforts and time into studying to pass the amateur radio tech license test, or years ago my personal fitness trainer test along with so many others. And there were other times where I applied this technique to gain other achievements like overcoming debt. I would just take on a credit card balance and vow to destroy it and bring it down to zero, and nothing could stand in my way of making this happen. I have also used it to quit smoking and lose weight. During these times I can remember that not much else in my life existed and all of my time was dedicated to my cause.
Today at 54 I realize that in order to be able to retire completely and still manage to live an exciting life I must concentrate efforts towards finances. I still have another 12 years to work before I am ready to take that leap of faith, but I do understand that the efforts I make right now will have a huge outcome on the life I will lead during my retirement. I certainly wish that I would have learned these principles many years ago, but what sense does it make to look back at past mistakes. It will not change the present and will not improve the future. It is only now and the efforts I decide to make that will help me build all of the tools and resources I will need to achieve my goals. This of course is not just limited to money as staying in good health is certainly one of the area’s that I wish to acquire and maintain in my golden years.
I write these things to serve as both reminders and affirmations as to support the missions that I serve. It is only through these strong beliefs that I truly understand what it is that I am trying to acquire. What about you? Have there been times in your life where you applied concentrated effort? I am sure there have been. And are there area’s of your life where it may be necessary to use this technique once again?
